Name:The Magnificent 9 - English 9 at Horton High School

Brief Description of the Site:
Scott Bennett teaches English at Horton High School, located in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada. He has created The Magnificent 9 site for his grade 9 students. The site boasts a homework page, course assignments, a discussion board, and online vocabulary engine and quizzes. There’s even online marks access so students can monitor their grades.

How to use the site:
Although the focus is on a 9th grade course, his ideas and some activities are appropriate for various high school grade levels and disciplines. Bennett reports that his students use the site to check homework, get assignments, work through projects, check their marks, and share online discussion. The Course Description and Student Work areas offer useful information, but the real meat of the site can be found in Student Resources. Here students are able to access links, rubrics, guides, and advice for various topics covered in class. Teachers will find several creative lesson ideas in this section. Bennett says this site has become the hub that ties together the course and offers students a chance to stay connected outside of school.
